How do you frame an unfinished basement for drop ceiling?
You'd want to frame and drywall first from floor to ceiling (bottom of floor joist), then do the drop ceiling. Given, of course, that you finish your walls properly ie. insulate, frame, etc.
Good luck with your project.
As per the previous post if you intend to frame your basement, you would do this first and then the L channel is attached to the studding. However if you do not intend to frame your basement, you can either install the L channel directly to concrete or a more preferable way would be to attach strapping to the wall to be used a backing for the L channel.
